One more win and they're in

ualbany sports logoThe UAlbany basketball teams -- both men's and women's -- are one win away from the NCAA tournament. And they're both playing Saturday.

Men
The UAlbany men take on Vermont in Burlington Saturday for the America East tournament title at 11:30 am (yep, the morning). The game is on ESPN2.

The last time the two teams met -- in January at the SEFCU Arena -- the Great Danes lost 50-43. Yes, they both play very slow: UAlbany is 279th nationally in adjusted tempo and Vermont is 309th.

A win would send UAlbany to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2007.

Update: UAlbany beat Vermont 53-49 -- the Great Danes are headed to the NCAA tournament.

Women
The UAlbany women face Hartford at SEFCU Arena Saturday at 7 pm.

The Great Danes have dominated their conference this year -- they were 16-0 in conference play this season. And their average scoring margin this season is +18.9.

A win would send the team to its second straight NCAA tournament appearance.

Update: UAlbany beat Hartford 61-52 -- the Great Danes are headed back to the NCAA tournament.
